On Sunday 24 Mar Soroptimists from London Chilterns Region “womanned” a suffragette cheer station at the London Landmarks Half Marathon (LLHM) – see the website for more about the event www.llhm.co.uk
The event broke its fundraising target of £6m. LLHM is run by the baby and pregnancy charity Tommy’s. In this its second year, LLHM had 13,000 runners. Lia Fyles, LLHM race director, said: “We’re delighted to have reached our fundraising target, and we expect that figure to rise close to £7m… We’re thrilled to have welcomed thousands of runners to tackle one of the most unique and interactive half marathon routes in the world. We have already received some incredible feedback about the day, with runners loving the music, the cheer stations and the London characters lining the route.”
Soroptimists volunteered in 2018 for the first time and it was great fun as well as a brilliant way for more people to find out about us! To read what happened last year see www.sigbi.org/london-chilterns/2018/04/08/llhm/
Next year the event will be on 29 March 2020 – put a note in your diary now!
